Rob Delaney has become a household name on Twitter. He’s currently close to 500,000 followers (@robdelaney) and was recently named “Funniest Person on Twitter” at Comedy Central’s Comedy Awards.
A short while ago, he teamed up with Klondike (@Klondikebar) to introduce the world to some of the lesser-known funny people on Twitter. Over the past few weeks, the Klondike Comedy Showcase has been in full effect.
This is how the contest works: Each week, Klondike and Delaney introduce a predetermined joke category and welcome all Twitter followers to partake simply by following @Klondikebar and then tweeting their original material using the hashtag: #KCS. Each week, a finalist is selected and eventually the 10 finalists will go head-to-head to win an all expenses paid VIP trip with Delaney to the New York Comedy Festival.
Mandatory has exclusive video footage of Delaney’s introduction for the Week 7 category: “I Hate Your Car,” but first let’s take a look at the hilarious finalists who have emerged in the first half of the contest:
Week 1: “Old People and Technology”
Week 2: “Stupid Things Overheard at Sporting Events”
Week 3: “Your Mom Walks into a Bar…”
Week 4: “Love Thy Neighbor”
Week 5: “Worst Pick-up Lines”
Week 6: “Text Messages Gone Wrong”
